Motion picture film in your SLR camera
Ran my first roll over to a chain store's C-41 machine and took home to scan myself. Completely impressed. Haven't done any prints nor blow ups yet. Most of the shots I took were Fall landscapes.

I also shoot 16 mm motion picture film... It looks the same-meaning it has the detail and warmth of a movie. The edges of the images are so good, it looks almost 3-D using long zooms as well as primes lenses. Colors are just as vibrant as slide film. Unbelievable. Great product that will keep me using film into the future. Digital cameras I use too and it has its place, but it isn't film.

Don't use it for portraits
This film is one of the best for scanning compared to Kodak Gold 100 & 200. It gives vivid color and high contrast images. However, it's horrible for shooting portraits; it produces a reddish skin tone on people. You can desaturate the color using Photoshop for better skin tone however.

This is a great film that I use regularly in this world where analog photography is slipping away and Kodak itself is clinging to life. I use it for all kinds of shooting. It's a very nice overall film.
I use this film for shoots where quality is paramount.The colors are natural and not "pumped up" like some of the other professional color films. I shot Fuji Reala 100 for years and when it was discontinued I tried several other films before going with Ektar 100. It works well for natural life like portraits and I use it for on location outdoor senior picture shoots. It does not require significant photo shop or post production touch up. It is also readily available at affordable prices.
Much has been said about this film and much of it is true. It's a great color negative film. I can;t say it has the level of quality of slide film but for a color negative, this is an excellent film.
OK, you unapologenic film guys, this is a good one. Very high color saturation; perfect for both conventional and urban landscapes. Contrast is a bit high in some sunny situations, but great for overcast days. Not the best film for portraits, however.
This is a great film. I really like the tones and the color effects it gives. I am glad it is still around but I just wish it were a bit cheaper. I shoot a lot of slide film but after trying Ektar, I am slowly moving more toward it.
Great film. Lets you enlarge to 24 x 16
I'm no pro, but I don't mind saying that Kodak's Ektar 100 is the best film I've ever used. I've only ever shot on 35mm (and I don't plan on changing that), and I haven't tried a vast array of films. Up until a few years ago, I just bought the cheapest film I could, and had it processed at one of the big chain drug stores...and I wondered why my pictures looked bad! Anyway, the greatest thing about Ektar 100 is the rich, faithful color reproduction. Such deep reds!! It's also very consistent. I get similar results from roll to roll. And it's very affordable! Cons: 100 is definitely a slow speed. I find myself using my external flash when using the film indoors, and sometimes even in the shade when outdoors. Couldn't Kodak make a 400 speed Ektar? For long exposures, I wish there was more information on reciprocity failure. An official conversion chart would be useful!
Gave me exactly what I was looking for!
Nice low grain film for good lighting or tripod use. Scans well.
If you're going to shoot film, when in doubt use this. So crisp, so beautiful; were there any justice in the market place, Kodak could make a good living just out of this stuff. I use other kinds, including other brands, but Ektar 100 is king.
